Watford plans caught cold by frost

Watford plans caught cold by frost

Watford 2nd choice goalkeeper Richard Lee has admitted that the Hornets pre-match plans ahead of the quite awful 4-0 drubbing at Reading were thrown into disarray by the freezing conditions.

Lee, through his weekly blog - www.richardleegk.com - confirms that Brendan Rodgers` men were forced to up sticks and leave their London Colney training base when the -7 conditions caused havoc with the Hornets training schedules.

(Spare a thought for Blue Square side Luton Town then, as they put up with -30 week in, week out - that must be cold).

The out-of-favour keeper stated "The week itself wasn`t an ideal one for training. The weather conditions meant the training pitches at [London] Colney were frozen over so we had to make the trip over to Borehamwood FC to train on the astroturf".

Astroturf? Heaven knows what that`ll have done to the Brendan Rodger`s vision of 'total football` and the increasingly frustrating passing game desired by the Hornets coaching staff.

That would never have been the surface of choice at Chelsea would it gaffer?

Oh no. Even Lee admits it left Watford with "a few more niggling injuries than normal" but is quick to point out that "the quality of the training was at a high standard, all being considered"!!!

Hey, we still got hammered at the Madjeski so it couldn`t have been that good could it now Richard?
